I just saw this on B&G's facebook page. What an awesome vessel.

Hell of a boat, and a hell of a sailor. To commission what has to be a million-dollar-plus one-off for doing the NW Passage when you are pushing 75 is pretty ambitious, although I suspect a lot of that boat's build and upkeep is heavily sponsored. And that's fine.

It is not a one off. It is the first of a production line. Several hulls have already been commissioned and are in the process of being built.

Well, I own a custom design that was supposed to be a production model, but it turned out to be a one-off! Sort of: the designer slapped on a canoe stern and made himself Hull No. 2 and Last. I suspect that Mr. Cornell will have a bit more luck!
